Business description: Collaborate is an industry analyst firm that focusing on the collaborative software market. We have a long history in market research and publishing in this area.. Based on this expertise, we also offer a comprehensive suite of advisory services to vendors marketing collaborative solutions and to end-user companies interested in implementing collaborative solutions.. We're different from other consulting firms in that we don't look just at the technology side of collaboration, but also at the people and process aspects of implementing successful collaborative solutions. After all, it's people who collaborate, not the systems. In addition to the technical issues that must be addressed, we look closely at the cultural, economic, and political environment within companies to assess the readiness of the organization to collaborate effectively. The Internet is changing the way business is conducted. It has spawned a revolution in business process automation over the past few years. Unfortunately, many of the business processes that have been automated focused heavily on the technology side of the solution. As a result, many of these processes failed, or met with limited success. The missing ingredient was people! Collaboration in business can only be built upon trusted relationships between people. The next wave of business process automation will include collaboration as a key element in the solution.
